NOTICE to the YACHTING and MARITIME COMMUNITY
FROM THE ROYAL SOUTHAMPTON YACHT CLUB and the ROYAL NAVAL VOLUNTEER RESERVE YACHT CLUB
In recognition of the 400th Anniversary of the departure of THE MAYFLOWER and SPEEDWELL You are invited to join with the Royal Southampton and Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Yacht Clubs in a GRAND PARADE OF SAIL - SATURDAY, 15 AUGUST 2020
Vessels/yachts will muster between Marchwood and Mayflower Park at 1030h departing at 1100h sailing to Greenland Buoy. Together with the ASTO sail training fleet, Tall Ships, Historical Vessels, VIPs and a myriad of other vessels, sail and motor, the spectacle will be a feature of our Maritime History and recognition of the valuable world-wide contribution Southampton has given over hundreds of years. Saturday’s Parade of Sail will be a significant reminder of the link between the south coast and beyond to the historic Mayflower voyage of 1620.
All arrangements are subject to COVID-19 Government Regulations at the time but we anticipate a successful launch to the event. Spectators on shore will find Mayflower Park, Town Quay, Weston Shore and Hythe will be good vantage points to view the spectacle.
